Wailers, Sundown Theatre, Edmonton, 1973 (Rare Video)

Today we revisit a post from 2015 which finds The Wailers performing at a reggae festival in Edmonton, 1973.  It is their first televised live performance.  

MELODY MAKER, DECEMBER 1, 1973

While the biggest news item here is the fact that Sha Na Na was saved from being cancelled as an American television show, there is a short review of The Wailers performance at the Sundown, Edmonton charity concert. For more on this show, including audio and video, CLICK HERE.

I have also included adverts which appeared in MELODY MAKER in 1973.
